Long time no see. May 1 update

Post  Weedless_ on 5/1/2015, 5:23 pm

Hello, all. 
I haven't been here in over a year I think.
Last year I got lazy with the gardening and busy with other things, so we haven't gotten much out of our boxes, other than the abundance of lettuces, and our newly planted blackberries did quite well for the first year.
This year, the weather so far has been merciful, and blessed us with tolerable spring temperatures and lots of rain, so I have jungle going on in the SFG.
 We are pretty much done with radishes, other than Daikons. Asparagus beds have granted us with generously endowed stalks. Lettuces are a jungle right now, and this year I got a ton of volunteer plants. Have no idea how they survived a year in the compost bin (I haven't composted since the fall of 2013), but that's the truth. I have at least 20 (!) tomato plants (I had to pull lots of them out, due to crowding), several mystery squash plants. Not sure what kind of plants they are yet, but I will see some squashes soon. I really hope these are not pumpkins. So far they don't look like pumpkin, more like zucchini or yellow squashes, so we'll see.
Same about tomatoes -- we bought a bunch of heirloom tomatoes last year, so hopefully those are meaty beefsteak variety...
I planted a bunch of new cucumbers from Baker Creek, carrots, chard, beets, parsnips, kale - grows like a dream, perpetual spinach is looking good. Pole beans mostly croaked because it was so wet, I may need to start over. Bush beans seem to be doing great.
This year I planted basil around tomatoes, and spread marigolds everywhere, hopefully it will deter the vermin -- last year chipmunks invaded our garden and they brought a bunch of weeds with them, so I kind of gave up on that.

We also added three blueberry bushes, the grown up kind, so hopefully we'll see some berries this summer.

Welcome back, Weedless.

It will be interesting to see what kind of harvest can be got due to neglect.  At least from the sound of it you will get something, and it may be quite a lot.

Keep us informed, and don't overdo things. Take anything as a bonus.

Hi, Weedless, I sounds like you have quite a garden going, some in volunteers?
